TTRoberts and greygreen,

Thanks for the reponse. The people on this board are quite helpful (and nice, too!).

You may not "need" a list, but it would certainly help you get back what you may have lost. Taking pictures of your library of books might be the next best thing . . .just be sure to keep such lists and/or pictures in a different location than your home (like a bank deposit box or in the care of a trusted relative).

With regards to the library, would I need extensive proof as to what I owned? Would a list suffice? The only reason I ask is that you go out of your way to mention the burden of proof below.

And does a list constitute proof of ownership? I would certainly hate to try to obtain physical proof of 6,000+ items. It's easy enough to prove the value - but what's the easiest way to prove ownership?

Thanks for the advice. I'll start calling agents and see what I can find given the information you have provided.

Have a good night,
